3 Deep Design

3deep_design.jpgThe Character of 3 Deep Design is captured in its logo. Clear and confident, its bold typographic simplicity is functional, intelligent and solid. Letter by letter is crafted with an exactitude that speaks of a meticulious detail, focus and resolve.

Each project has a unique personality and communicates a humanist and intimate approach.

shynola.jpgShynola studied illustration and media at college in Maidstone, Kent, during which time they collaborated to make paintings, books, comics, illustrations, music and poetry. In 1996, they organised a show of work with friends from college at a London gallery, and the show was called “Shinola”.

They’ve been hot in my book for years. Their list of promos, adverts and awards is too impressive to mention here.

They are represented by Studio AKA, Oil Factory and The Directors Bureau


arkitip.jpgUsing the magazine as a medium, Arkitip provides artists with a platform for open expression. Supporting Arkitip helps keep the true spirit of art alive.

ARKITIP’S beginnings were humble. While the magazine began with a 50 copy, hand stapled run in 1999, those first copies look more sophisticated than most other “zines” you might have considered in the same category.

D.A.D.D.Y stands for Design Animation Design Design Yay.

They are from Dublin (that is in Ireland)
